Which do you fear more? Pain or Humiliation? Not talking about petty shame, the type that comes from failure, embarrassment or the like. But real humiliation. Worst case here was something like being subjected to
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
gang-bang, having it lavishly video taped and spread on the internet
so that no matter where you go, no matter how hard you try to hide, there will always be the chance that the people around you will have been intimate witness to the most debasing violation imaginable. Maybe they even enjoyed it. Regardless of if they couldn't or wouldn't, they certainly didn't stop or prevent it. Now you can't escape from wondering what they might be thinking, their judgement. How deafening would their silent thoughts be? Their glances, the unspoken body language of rejection or speculation?

Would any level of pain be worse than that?

I'm afraid of pain. So much so it motivates me in almost anything I do. But after reading Wolf Guy up to the beginning of volume ten, I think I'm re-evaluating that. People can die from rape. What level of torture would that have to be to kill a person? To not be able to shower, the salt, etc, assaulting touch, taste and smell. A constant reminder of what's been done in every breath that jars ravaged muscles and raw skin. To be exposed to whatever temperature the abandoned building was, with no covering to escape from it.

Rape is humiliating enough but
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
to have it put on the internet and be popular…?
Especially in a society like Japan, where the group comes before the individual. Nails that stick up are hammered down. What would happen to this nail? What would that knowledge do to this nail or anyone who cared about her?

What is it about Wolf Guy that has really caught my attention? I was horrified, repulsed, disgusted by what the author/artist dredged me through. And yes, they didn't have to. We as readers aren't so desensitized that half of that would have sufficed for the shock and awe. But maybe that's why they did it. Every moment of reading it, my hands wouldn't put it down because I kept thinking,
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
he's going to finally make it. Someone's going to stop this. There are so many chapters left, it'll happen any page now and then I can read about the aftermath to get the foul taste out of my mouth. Even as I'm getting closer and closer to what has currently been released, someone, anyone, will burst through the door, some crazy fight or interruption will ensue, and I'll have the satisfaction of knowing it's over. I'll be able to put down this now-wretched manga and move on to better uses of my time… But it never happened. By the time I had caught up with what had been released, no one had come.
Tasting bile in my mouth, I walked away troubled, determined to move on. But, my mind keeps drifting back to what I read. Even as I read something else, my mind is thinking about what these characters reactions would be in that situation. Would they still try to save the girl, even after it's too late?

Then I start reevaluating that, what would "too late" be? She dies? I don't think so; then she wouldn't have to face the world, stranger and acquaintance alike, who has witnessed this. Her body is maimed beyond mental maiming and the rape? I'm a believer that mental maiming can be worse than physical. Makes interaction with other people harder as they can't see the extent of the damage or what form it takes. They don't know to stay away or what to avoid talking about. I do find the seeming contempt of the author/artist for the readers intriguing. Here we have the typical fan-service girl with bodily proportions and clothing and supposed attitude to match, even the "older female" and "teacher" genres are included, a few light scenes where she gets into bad situations to tickle the imaginations of readers who are into that sort of thing and then they make her completely undesirable as a fan-service character by extending the worst possible scenario beyond the breaking point of most readers.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
She still looks fine, big chest and all (with no obvious disfiguration, so far),
but the readers know exactly what has been done to her and how much was done. So many of the comments here have shuddered about how this girl is no longer something they would have romantic interest in or they think the main character wouldn't have interest in her anymore. But I think the author/artist know exactly what they are doing.

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
So I love the guy who's trying to save her; even as he knows all of what has happened to her? No, I think it's deeper than that. Like when I first read Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card, I've taken an interest in what happens to these people so much so that I would damage my own health over it to find out what happens in the end. Respect. I think that's closer. I have been moved. Nothing else matters, no matter how dirty she (or society, or me "the reader") now thinks she is, he's still going to try to save her. He still Values her. This idea is all the more powerful when contrasted with his earlier contempt for humans and tendency toward a philosophy of isolationism.

I was intrigued by this series before, good art, interesting premise and all, but, after thinking about it, now I'm hooked. Of course, seeing how the story isn't finished, there is still the possibility of the ever-feared "lame" ending. But I, for one, am willing to see how this one ends.

Hmm. "Seems to be a decent werewolf manga. Yey to me!" *reads all the way through* Not.

I've been pondering whether to comment now and relegate it to the "manga flops list" or wait as the manga unfolds and endure it. As of this writing, I'm with the latest chapter that is 21 in scanlated release. After 3 volumes, the plot isn't going anywhere but down.

First impression: a series marred of loose plot and lousy characters. Excuse me but the hell with this manga? Where's the solid plot? So it tells me that Wolf Guy takes on the delirious gangs and wins effortlessly! So what's next in it for me if I take that out of the equation? Can the story stand on its own? Don't tell me Wolf Guy and his sexy teacher will go lovey-dovey next? :/ It's the coolness of middle school after all! (I know how distorted that argument is. Attack it, for all I care.)

Where's the depth in the characters? Where's the "intelligence" these readers speak of? I don't care if you inject loads of mindless and over-the-top violence in there but if that's the actual story then it's got to be BORING. Plus, the female teacher is only a sex object and a damsel in distress.

You say Seinen is primarily targeted for "mature" boys? There is no sense of maturity in this series. At all. W00t! Middle-school riots and gangs??! That's a change. Bleh. It's full of immature pranks and lousy characters through and through without giving a second's thought on doing a necessary groundwork for a decent plot.

If you're looking for one-way action, violence as a way of life and rape like it's easy to do so, go read this one. But if you're looking for an intricate story with well-developed characters, sorry, you must be fooling yourself to read this.

PS: Like GuardianPL did, there goes my 2 points for its artwork. ^_^

"Give it the benefit of the doubt!" That's my mantra while reading this disappointing manga to prevent me from ripping it into shreds.

Plot: A supposed-to-be middle-school kid is a target by bullies and always beaten to near-death but is so strong he actually manages to stand up every fight unscathed. Wait, he's a werewolf! 1/5

Characters: Middle-school kids hung up on gang fights and immature teachers hell-bent on keeping face. 1/5

Artwork: If it's goddam artwork you want, you got it in here. 2/5

Originality: Close to zero. The author just added the concept of werewolf in overused plot devices (ie, bullied scrawny kid, ditzy females, ugly gangsters, etc). Nothing new to offer.

To add insult to injury, is this duo trying to take me for a fool? What's with that corny narration that's so obvious even without it?

The pretentiousness of it all should have the series aptly titled, "Wolf Kid (for Kids)".

30-odd chapters in, and I'm still not seeing a plot. I think it's meant to be an action manga, but so far we've only run into middle school bullies that even the main character doesn't take seriously enough to bother fighting.

On top of that, we're not really seeing character development. The main character can pretty much be defined by "Wolf pride"/"I hate humans" with the exception of his growing feelings for his teacher, who so far has near-wholly been defined by sex, whether that's her past rape, her failed marriage due to that rape, or her status as an object of lust for most of the male characters. Well, that's not really fair; sometimes she's a damsel-in-distress, instead. The rest of the supporting cast are cyphers and seem pretty irrelevant so far.

That said, I'm still hopeful. There are a couple minor characters that look like they have potential, and it looks like the ridiculous school bully arc is wrapping up soon. Once that's done, we'll hopefully see the real conflict, whatever that'll be, and I'll be able to get a better feel for the manga. The art's pretty good. I may reevaluate later.

I'm truly sorry to say so, but I'm one disappointed bastard.
Initially I got instantly drawn in due to great drawing and werewolf theme, but from chapter to chapter my disgust for the "kiddiness" of the manga was building up. Story is so shallow, naive and stupid that it's hard to believe. I think if I was ~15 year old I could swallow it and relish the "oh-I'll-be-raped-any-minute-look-at-my-humongous-boobs-and-save-me" attitude but being 27 I simply can't cope. And it's all the middle school on top of that roll eyes Yuck, it's so obvious for whom that manga was created...

It saddens me that the only convincing depiction of werewolves I could find is from Werewolf:The Apocalypse and Wolf's Rain. This Wolfen Crest is just a sad excuse for a werewolf story.

I truly wish I could say something better than that, believe me :/

4 for the art, back on hunt for anything similar to Berserk or Vinland Saga.

I read this and I liked it. It was very sad to see what happened to the female protagonist, but as luck would have it,I kept reading and I have to say... the ending is really sweet. You don't really care what happens earlier anymore, I think I just realized that it was part of the story, part of her life, and in the end, she reaches a place that she finds absolute peace. A sanctuary, or oasis, or whatever you call it, home. I think that in the future when I remember this story, I'll remember the good parts, like the ending and peace she found. I thought the ending was very beautiful.

i am so tired of people bitching and moaning about a manga's originality. Everything has been done before, everything, if an idea hasn't been done before its because its a bad idea.
This manga has werewolves in it, how unoriginal, it is just copying that-one-werewolf-manga. This manga takes place at school, stop copying GTO mr. author. I saw a gun in this manga, stop being copying james bond and do something original.

also, yeah there is a lot of sex and violence in this manga, but it is an adult manga, in the adult world we are surrounded by sex and violence. Try to think of a week where you went without one or the other, it was probably a god damn boring week.

ahhh, thats enough of a rant. But yeah, bottom line, this manga is good, and the characters have real emotions and motivations. The main character is a badass, and there is a reason behind the way he acts. Same with the teacher.

It's rather difficult to assess Wolf Guy correctly. The writing is about on level with a teenage fanfiction writer complete with terrible captions telling us the most obvious of details. Yet the artwork is so aesthetically pleasing in its character designs. It's jarring how advance the art is in comparison to the dialogue that it seems like a re-edited spoofing of an actually decent manga. Constant action captions in the third person don't help either.

The female lead is milquetoast(always wanted to use that word) mid-twenties teacher who may have well been cut out of a hentai series considering how she seemly invites rape. The main character is no better, he's the creation of a writer who doesn't understand how to create a good anti-hero. So he piles on the hero cheap traits of grimdark passion and angst to make him seem more layered. The outcome is laughable. The rest of characters hardly matter, the cowardly principal, the useless idealists, the bad guys, all are there to extol how great the main character is. Inugami is a shameless mary sue.

Wolf Guy is polarizing manga. I wish the artist would team up with someone who could write well but for now I rather enjoy the ridiculous action scenes as long as I ignore the plot.

The beginning was great an interesting plot and characters. It might have had some clichés, the mysterious protagonist with a haunted past, the big evil guy with big bad henchmen, and girls, somewhat idealistically characters etc etc. but IMO it was well executed and you got a sense of the characters motives behind their actions and well for a manga it was kinda believable and just added to the gritty feeling of the story which also was one of the thing it had going for it. And the supernatural part was well integrated in the story. Yeah the violence might be a little over the top but was passable.
The art was, and still is, good and you got the feeling that the mangaka might have a point with the manga.
So all in all at the beginning it might not have been a total masterpiece but it was good and well worth a read.

But as the story went on it just went totally haywire! It goes from good to just disguting

SPOILERS here we come!

Spoiler (highlight to view)
Well first of all we started with “just” two rapes, yeah its fricking just now. This henchgirl and the teacher, and protagonists later love interest got raped it did explain their motives and why they acted the way they did, but honestly two of the main characters got raped? Mangaka got a fetish? I don’t know. This is just way too big a coincidence and IMO just over the top.
Later the big bad gets his sorry butt kicked, in a very intriguing way and different way, and just goes completely berserk. We now got a totally psychotic big bad, but about the same time the plot deteriorates to a big nice mess yay.
And now we got the latest 10 charpters or so of major gang rape, once again teachers getting raped, which we gotta see in every frickin chapter while the protagonist wandering about I think by now we, the readers, got it, the teacher is some sort of rape bag. It is unnecessary, disgusting and has been dragged on for so long that it strangely enough have become boring and retarded.
At this point I don’t know if it is something that resembles a story or if it is just the mangaka living out some sort of sick rape fantasy? it sure does nothing for the so called plot in this mess.
Speaking of plot. What is it now? Rape plot? Cutting plot? See how evil the big bad is plot? I don’t know and I think the mangaka don’t know eitherand has been lost in the gang rape thing. I mean if you gotta use that crappy rape thing at least use it to propel somewhat of a plot forward, IMHO Sun-Ken Rock is a good example yeah we got that rape but we dont gotta see it in every damn chapter.
With all due, unless you like major gang rape read the first “arc” pretend that it is finished and forget about it.

I might pick this up again and see if something has changed but at this point I sincerely doubt it. Everything has just gotten way over the top and the point of it was lost at some point

Edit: lowerd score

The art was vivid, dark and dramatic, if clichéd. Alas, the story was so repetitive and lacking in substance, curiosity and movement that I had to force myself to finish the first two volumes in order to give it a fair try.
